Love turned into a museum

There is a very famous story in Tetela de Ocampo that talks about the poet named "Lolita" by the people of that time. Born in 1898, in a time of adversity and many difficulties, "Lolita" was an artist ahead of her time; she invented the fabric cutting system that today is very popular and characteristic of Tetela de Ocampo, Puebla.
